PollysStudio's Shop Announcement

In my Etsy shop are paintings, prints and drawings of things that please my eye, hand and mind: plants, shells, human figures, fossils, vintage toys, animals, dishes, coastal landscapes both real and imagined. Everything is original, created by me. Paintings are oil on wood panel. All prints are hand-inked and pulled in my studio.

About My Figure Drawings:
Sketching a live model is a timed exercise. The model takes a pose for one minute, five minutes, maybe twenty minutes or more. I draw what I see, or what strikes me about the pose: the gesture, the big shapes, the negative spaces, the light and shadow. It can be very intense, this way of drawing. Like an athletic or musical performance, it is condensed, vivid and alive. My model sketches are more about the process than the final product. Occasionally the result stands up on its own, and these are the sketches I offer in my shop.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
